2D model from 3D one, for 2D simulation
2D model from 3D one, for 2D simulationPosted by Cassoulet at February 11. 2013
Due to the complexity of my model I decided to make, for a first step, a 2D simulation of my object.
I thus would like to know how to build a 2D (a cut according to a plan) model from my 3D object imported as a *.step in Salome Meca.
Does anyone have an idea please ?
Thank you very much,

In theory, you can create a face having the shape of the domain boundaries with one or the other Salome tools (eg. New Entity, Basic, Plane then Operations, Transformation, etc. ), then partition it with your 3D geometry thanks to a partition operation (Operations, Partition). It should split your domain face in a suitable way. Then you should be able to extract the domain face you want to mesh from the resulting shape thanks to New Entity, Explode tool.
